We envision working with locally established refugee/immigrant organizations to help identify good candidates for this pilot project. We would hope to match up volunteers with someone in their area. A leader or other volunteer from one of our organizations would be present for an initial meetup to help you get to know one another, then from there the volunteer and family would work out how their in-home get togethers would look.
Commitment for volunteers is 2 hours a week for a minimum of 2 months with the option to continue after this initial trial period.
